A: Very dark in color soft carbonation

S: Aged in rye whiskey barrels but it smells like a good stout on the nose with roasted coffee and chocolate then some vanilla smells

T: smooth rich chocolate with some liquor taste I really would have guessed bourbon very smooth

M: Very smooth and surprisingly creamy for a barrel aged beers just an excellent mouthfeel

O : fairly impressed here, it's got a very smooth mouthfeel no heat the barrel is right there but not in your face it's an astonishingly well rounded BA stout

$ 3.99/12 oz bottle at Vintage estates in Boardman, OH
Vintage 2014 bottle at 40 degrees into standard pint glass
Aroma – none
Head small (< 1 cm), light brown, frothy, rapidly diminishing to 2 mm ring
Lacing good – narrow rings and stalactites of small bubbles
Body dark brown, opaque
Flavor of cheap rye whiskey, no roasted malt, no hops, no alcohol, no diacetyl. Stomach burns.
Palate full, creamy, soft carbonation

To me this seems much like drinking cheap rye straight up. The only redeeming characteristics are the appearance and palate, which, incidentally, are the only stout features. I don’t know about any rebellion, but it is certainly revolting.

Imagine my delight (upon reviewing and enjoying this beer) on finding that Full Pint brews in the Pittsburgh area! Definite end of summer road trip! Poured from a 12oz into my tulip glass. Midnight with a few small bubbles... recipe for visual excellence in an aged IS, right? Aromas of coffee, rye, and roasted malt. Everything slightly subdued, though of course, more came to the surface as it warmed up, including the elusive whiskey notes. The taste (for me) was almost off the charts good. Coffee, cocoa nibs, rye bread deliciousness, a hint of whiskey, overall mild and enjoyable. Such a great balance, and not alcohol-heavy (even at 11% ABV). So subtle and nice. Complete 180 degrees from a (to remain unnamed) BBA Imperial that I had the other night that basically broke a bottle of whiskey over my face. Rye Rebellion gave nice, balanced flavors that evolved over time, and changed my mind about the style (which I often find overpowering). Nice, velvety mouthfeel. This hit the spot. Can't wait to age a couple of these bad boys. Thumbs straight up for this one.
